Philly Drought

There was a great article on SI.com about how tough it's been to be a Philly fan, listing the top 100 "heartbreaks" during the past 100 seasons. SI actually ranked the Eagles loss in the 2003 NFC championship game as the #1 Philly heartbreak. I can still remember 610-WIP talking about the Super Bowl like it was a done deal going into the Tampa Bay game. Mike Miscanelli was the only voice of reason at the time, and to this day, I can remember that game...just like the soft side goal Vanbiesbrouck left in when the Flyers failed to close out the NJ Devils. And of course we all remember where we were when the Wild Thing served up the home run to Joe Carter in 1993. I was watching with my fraternity brothers and we all knew it was coming. When JC hit the bomb, all i remember were the beer bottles and the chips hitting our TV, it was brutal.


Enjoy, it's all true. In the words of Ricky Watters, "FOR WHO, FOR WHAT??"
